Jam Session

Come out to the Jam Session, hosted by CAB, in the Wallace Student Center on March 17th, 2016 at 8pm. Xzavier Williams, a returning participant of the Jam Sessions believes, “ the overall talent that comes out is very good and it is a lot of fun to watch the talent. It is also a lot of fun to meet new people and hang out with friends.” Xzavier loves to sing, and perform songs that he has written himself. If you enjoy singing or even just playing an instrument this is a great event to network and socialize with other talented students.

Whether singing solo or with friends, participants gave it their all as they shared songs from a variety of genres, including pop, soul, hip hop, and contemporary worship music. Students often comment that they love the relaxed atmosphere of the jam sessions, because it gives them a chance to socialize while enjoyingIMG_6928

Bacon Day:

Bacon macaroni and cheese, bacon-wrapped hot dogs, bacon cheese fries, bacon pizza… That can only mean one thing at Campbell: Bacon Day! One of CAB’s most popular events, Bacon Day drew students from all across campus to the Rumley Center to brave the gloomy weather and claim their spot in line for a stylish bacon day t-shirt. Despite the rain and line that extended nearly to Marshbanks, students were all laughs and smiles as they socialized, eagerly waiting for the doors to open. Many also enjoyed seeing the reappearance of the infamous bacon suit that various CAB members had been sporting throughout the week on campus, with several #baconday2015 selfies appearing on Campbell’s social media.

When the event officially began, students had the chance to try multiple different bacon recipes, and were overheard excitedly saying how much they enjoyed getting to attend an event where there was free food and fun with friends – what could be better?IMG_6852

Throwback Thursday:

Last March Campbell students learned Salsa by coming to the Rumley Center at Campbell where students could learn a little bit about the dance on campus. Students were taught basic moves and rhythms of salsa dance. Students came to the class in order to learn salsa dance moves for many different reasons. Salsa dance roots are based on Puerto Rican rhythms, Cuban Son, and San Montuno. However, the dance and music is always evolving. There are many different types of salsa dance based on the area they come from. In many styles of salsa dancing, as a dancer shifts their weight by stepping, the upper body remains level and nearly unaffected by the weight changes. Weight shifts cause the hips to move. Arm and shoulder movements are also incorporated. Salsa dance came to the Rumley Center at Campbell where students could learn a little bit about the dance on campus. Students were taught basic moves and rhythms of salsa dance. Students came to the class in order to learn salsa dance moves for many different reasons.

“I’m fascinated with Latin culture and I have a bicultural family so I’m really interested in Latin dance” said Audrey Jordan, a Freshman International Business and Spanish major.
